We went twice during our stay. It was amazing! They have got sushi, lobsters, oysters, soups, fish counter all under one roof! We have tried the medium and jumbo size lobsters, the later was a monster, definitely enough for a couple. It worked out cheaper than just buying a small lobster which was €29.95 dollars (more or less). There was... More

I went with some friends. The lobster is delicious and really fresh, with few options of side dishes. I tried the potatoes and they're also very good. I do recommend this place. Chelsea Market is a great place to visit with plenty of options to have a good meal.

There were lots of people when I was there but the waiting wasn't that long. I enjoyed the lobster on the small size which costs around USD 36. It's perfectly matched with the butter and lemon.

The Lobster place in Chelsea market is wonderful. You can order a 1.5, 2 and 3lb lobster. It comes with melted butter and make sure to use the plastic gloves. The lobster is sweet, fresh. There is also sides which we did not try. You can also order to the right chowder scallop, lobster etc. In the same space there... More

We popped into Chelsea Market when we were walking the High Line. Two seafood-gasms later, we carried on the walk. The Lobster Place is great - stacked to the rafters with fresh seafood and hungry patrons, it's great fun. We feasted on a selection of incredibly fresh and varied oysters, crab claws and sushi washed down with wine and beers.... More

For the price, freshness, selections, can't best this seafood food hall inside Chelsea Market. Try to be there by 12:30pm to avoid the lunch crowd. Everything is good there, lobster, clam chowder, oysters, crabs... we went with 4 people, total spent about $120 bucks including each with a glass of wine and all walked out satisfied

Without question the Chelsea Market should be on every NYC visitors list who likes good, inventive food. So many great places to visit from halavah bakers to inventive Mexican cuisine. The real play, though, is the sushi bar at The Lobster Place. Yes, you will get a little jostled. Yes, it's an ever changing scene of people. No, you won't... More

This place is heaven for any seafood lover. We ordered a sample of different oysters and the sea urchin to share. The oysters were fresh and delicious and I thought the urchin was really good as well. We also had one of the better bowls of clam chowder I've had in NYC and a plate of lobster dumplings that were... More

Three of us had two 1-1/2 pound lobsters and a poboy sandwich. Everything was so delicious and fun once we donned our rubber gloves and dug into our food. Only drawback is that there's standing room only and very crowded during spring break.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
